Educational Research Ethics

Guest speakers: Dr. Susan Hutchinson and Dr. Maria Lahman

Ethical decisions researchers make may be said to be the foundation of all rigorous research. If that is so, what guides your ethical choices? This talk will help attendees move beyond IRB requirements, a required starting place, to forming a personal ethical research stance. Attendees should bring examples of ethical dilemmas they would like to discuss.
